Brazos™ Free Form Sassafras Wood Walking Stick

Both seasoned hikers and casual strollers will enjoy the Sassafras Walking Stick. Sassafras makes for a strong -- and relatively lightweight -- staff. When our Sassafras Walking Sticks are finished, the beautiful bark takes on an orange-red hue, resulting in beautiful walking sticks that are both functional and attractive. Each piece of sassafras is meticulously chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded so that a Sassafras Walking Stick can be made. Finally, each Sassafras Walking Stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer. (Note: these beautiful walking sticks have a rough bark feel) The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Sassafras Walking Stick. Like all of our finely crafted, beautiful walking sticks and canes, the Free Form Sassafras Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest-quality wood and time-tested methods.

To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!

Walking Sticks

  • For small children and shorter adults, we generally recommend a 41-inch stick.
  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a 48-inch stick.
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 5’11”, we recommend a 55-inch stick.
  • For adults over 5’11”, we recommend a 58-inch stick.

Walking Canes

  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a our lighter 34-inch canes
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 6’, we recommend our standard 37-inch canes as the best starting point.
  • For adults over 6’, we offer 40-inch canes.

Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.

Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.

    Root Beer Striped Sassafrass Walking Stick

    Posted by Melissa on 23rd Jan 2015

    I adore this walking stick, the weight, size and coloring... PERFECT! Only thing that kept this for 5 stars, is that the bark is very rough, and I would love it to be a little more laquered to a smoother finish. What do I need to use to do this, without taking the bark off...?? Price is fabulous and this walking stick is divine.

    Beautiful wood,strong and fairly lightweight. An excellent hiking stick. Customer service was top notch. So was the packing and shipping of the stick. I will recommend Brazos to everyone and I will also buy from them again.

    A beutiful walking staff... everything I had hoped for.

    Posted by T.L. Sparkman on 11th Feb 2014

    I admired it the minute I pulled it from the package, and have come to admire it even more since I've carried it. The wood (sassafras) is beautiful and the workmanship is wonderful. It feels great in the hand, well balanced and strong. Some would claim it foolish to spend this much on a simple stick, but its a work of fine craftsmanship and natural beauty, and has already become a personal possession (made more so with the scripture engraving) that will someday be passed on as "grandpas walking stick".

    I will recommend the Brazos walking stick every chance I get.

    This stick always draws compliments

    Posted by C. Schultz on 23rd Jun 2013

    I bought one of these hiking sticks for my husband for Christmas to encourage him to walk more and to give him a little extra stability. I also had it personalized with his name and the year I gave it to him. It's lightweight and he uses it all the time, just as he would a cane. People always stop and comment on his cool-looking walking stick.

    Great stick

    Posted by Chris on 17th Jan 2013

    I saw some Brazos sticks in my local hardware store but there wasn't one that suited me. So I ordered one online. I was a little apprehensive about ordering sight unseen but it's come out great. The length recommendation for my height was right. I wanted something light and sassafras was a good choice for this. It is also a little more roughhewn that some of the others I had seen in the store, but that suits me just fine. Very pleased.

    The simple, dependable for many friends

    Posted by D.C. - Baytown on 29th Jul 2011

    A few years back I began searching for just a simple hard wood stick for hiking...Geez, hundreds of places to buy from, but the majority were gaudy custom mades and ridiculously priced. Finally came across Brazos. Purchased just a free form stick and was more than pleased. Since that time I have probably purchased close to 2 dozen sticks of different varieties to ship to hiking friends and relatives all across the country.

    I'm a "no frills hiker", and I hike all over the country, it's the simple, dependable sticks that I prefer. But you would think I ordered sticks that were a grand a piece by the customer service I have received. With quality and price a pretty moot point -(that part is just great), it is the service that has kept me coming back. I can honestly state that not once, ever, have I had an order done incorrectly. I have contacted Eric on several occasions with questions, and he has consistently been quick to respond and answer directly what ever I've asked. I communicated with him recently, and he even remembered a pic of my granddaughter hiking with a Brazos stick that I had sent him two years ago !

    And the shipping ...I'm amazed at how quick the turn around has been from shop to door. I've watched their biz grow to add a variety of new designs and accessories and one of a kind sticks. They stay on top every step of the way. Just hope you keep doing what you do!
